Watch: America Votes – NYU Reports

Five days to go, so maybe it’s time to start planning, where you are going to watch.  Looking for an alternative to CNN? How about NYU?

I am the executive producer of NYU’s election coverage, so if you watch us, it’s basically like watching a Lady Liberty Votes election show.

New York University’s Arthur L. Carter Journalism Institute is reporting the 2016 US presidential election through a live broadcast airing on Election Night!

It’s Trump vs. Clinton in an epic showdown — and we are right there to cover it minute by minute for you!

From 8:00-10:00PM (EST) NYU Journalism student reporters will monitor election results as they come in, speak to anchors located outside the Clinton and Trump victory parties, interview guests on air and follow the Senate and House races. Join us as we relive the 2016 presidential race, discussing a variety of topics including millennial voters, the use of social media, the Muslim vote, and the importance of political education.

Watch: The Election Show will be live streaming here beginning at 8:00PM (EST).

Young Hillary Supporter Hopes Party Will Unite

Name: Jonathon Boyd
Borough: Manhattan
I will vote: Hillary Clinton

“I support Hillary Clinton because I believe she has the most impeccable record of any candidate running.  She took an incredibly active role as First Lady, more so than what was typically expected at the time, which gave her exposure to policy and foreign affairs, and a strong presence in society.”

“Her record as Senator and Secretary of State shows us that she’s willing to work across party lines to achieve what’s best for her entire constituency, while actively standing up for human rights, safety, and well-being. These are things she’s been fighting for since long before her life in the political sphere, which is why I believe she will continue to do so as president.”

“We need a leader whose vision is realistic and feasible, and I believe Secretary Clinton has the knowledge and experience to come through on the promises she’s made to the United States and to the world.”

“I try to encourage the dialogue among my family, friends, and peers as much as possible. Some people have a negative view of the Clintons, and I’ve found that through conversation, I can sometimes show a different perspective and possibly change a mind.”

“When it comes down to it, I think the most important thing is defeating the Republicans (particularly Donald Trump) in this consequential election. So quite often, my goal is to unite the Democratic side and ease the tensions of this HIllary vs. Bernie battle in hopes that whoever the nominee ends up being will have support from the Democratic Party.”

Bernie at Washington Square Park – As Close As I Could Get

This is Bernie Sanders speaking to thousands of people at a rally at Washington Square Park in Manhattan tonight.

This is how far I made it.

I mean look at these lines. And then imagine them entering trough two tiny Secret Service tents.

It’s the logistical nightmare you get, when you plan a rally in Manhattan in a park with a huge construction site on top of it. Oh well.

But then, who needs to see the real Bernie Sanders when you can have this?

First Time Voter Supports Bernie

Name: Libby Torres
Borough: Manhattan/ New York University
I will vote: Bernie Sanders

“I wanted to show my support for Bernie Sanders as an NYU student specifically. NYU is a private university that is pretty expensive for most people. Luckily I have been able to make ends meet, but I enjoy the fact that Bernie is trying to make a push for more accessible public education for college students.”

“This is really the first political demonstration that I am involved with, but I think with the Bernie Sanders campaign, I definitely would like to get more involved.”
